Your Pilates instructor in Geneva

Michaela Bendrihem – therapist

With over 15 years of Pilates teaching experience, Michaela is certified in “The New York Pilates Studio® Teacher Certification program for Authentic Pilates Exercise™” by Sean P. Gallagher, PT Director, one of the highest honors in the Pilates world.

She underwent a month of intensive training in California directly from her teacher and mentor, Darien Gold.

Qualified as a therapist in 2019, her sessions are reimbursed by health insurance companies.

An accomplished sportswoman who has practiced a number of sports including karate, swimming and athletics, she fell in love with the Pilates method during a stay in Paris.

So she became interested in this discipline and applied it to herself. After many years of regular practice, she went to the United States to perfect her knowledge and obtain her Pilates certification.

With this certification in hand, she decided to open her own Pilates studio in Geneva and, while still practicing the classical Pilates method, specialized in the field of pathologies and injuries. At the same time, she continued her Pilates training with world-renowned teachers, some of whom work in the health field and others with classical dance backgrounds. Eternally passionate, she continues to train regularly both in the United States and in Europe in order to offer cutting-edge Pilates classes that are as close as possible to the needs and demands of her clientele.

Demanding the highest standards of both herself and her students, she teaches Pilates with passion and attention to detail, enabling her clients to better assimilate this technique aimed at developing a healthy mind in a healthy body. This teaching is carried out in compliance with strict rules and within a framework of voluntary discipline.

Most of Michaela’s patients come to her with specific needs, such as eliminating pain or discomfort, or feeling better about themselves. Michaela’s experience enables her to quickly identify individual needs and personalize Pilates methods to maximize the chances of success.

Many people are unfamiliar with Pilates and assume that it’s all about simple exercises. During the first crucial sessions, participants are surprised by the intensity of the commitment required of them, and quickly notice the beneficial effects on their day-to-day activities, which turn out to be easier. Finally, these students discover that Pilates classes are an integral part of their daily lives.
